New Release ~ Bearly Shifted ~ Review

Bearly Shifted

Nissa Alexander returns to Bear Paw River ten pounds and one boyfriend lighter, with an attitude screaming leave me the hell alone. The last thing she needs is her older brother, the Alpha, lecturing her about settling down and true mates. Hell, he doesn’t even have his own mate, so he has no right to talk. And then, there’s the hunky bad boy, who’s working a missing person’s case in her neck of the woods. He needs to stop sniffing around before someone gets hurt. Nissa’s heart has been trampled on enough these past few years. She is absolutely not going to fall for this lone wolf.  Not gonna happen. But her bear isn’t taking no for an answer.

Zach Werner is on the hunt. But this time, it’s not for a predator or a bad guy to bring to justice. His job is to find a missing woman. Why the Florida wolf pack is paying so much money to find this female, Zach doesn’t know. And he doesn’t care. His job is his life.  At least, until he meets Nissa. After a brief tangle in the woods, Zach knows this curvy beauty is his mate.

Can he convince her he’s the wolf for her and stay alive long enough to finish the job?

 

Excerpt:

“Huge emotions like arousal, fear, anger and love help trigger the animal’s release. I was hoping a little foreplay might help you loosen up and shift, but all this is doing is frustrating me. Shit, I might die from blue balls by the time you finally shift.”
“Let me guess. You’re going to call me fat, and try to get me to angry shift?” She turned and cocked an amused grin at him.
“Do you want me to turn you over my knee and wallop your ass, little girl?”
She laughed. “Only if you want me lying down on my back, legs spread accepting all that honey talk you mentioned.”
“You’re killing me.” He groaned and bit his inner cheek.
“Come on; let’s get this over with, so we can celebrate by making out.”
“I don’t make out, little girl. I fuck. Hard.”

I just have to put out there, that I love Bear shifter books. I’ve been reading the Howls Romances and have enjoyed everyone of them. Bearly Shifted is no exception.

I lurved the interaction between Zack, aka Dog Breath and Nissa, his Little Bear. Snappy and teasing with an unmistakable sizzle. A fast paced read, I was disappointed when it was over. The romance flowed through out the book, Zach’s PI job derailed by meeting his mate.

Bearly Shifted is the first installment of The Mates of Bear Paw River. Hints of what I hope will follow in the series were woven in the book. I hope at least, lol!

I recommend Bearly Shifted to any shifter lover, especially if you like to read about bears and wolves. It kept me reading and entertained to the end.

Available for your reading pleasure on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited!

hail NO

Title: Hail No

Series: Hail Raisers #1
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romance
Release: September 27, 2017


Evander Lennox doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. At least, that is, until he’s sent to prison. The four years he’s incarcerated, he’s had no choice but to do the things that he’s asked to do, when he’s asked to do them. And now, if he doesn’t, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell.


Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively. 

***

Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere.

When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she’s finally getting to meet the family she’s always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas—giving her almost everything she’s ever wanted.

Just when she thinks she’s making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one.

After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she’s being used. Vowing to herself that she’ll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn’t prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge.

***

It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn’t as bad as it could be.

This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows.

But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association.

Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side—the loss of everything she’s worked so hard for.

Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he’s not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

One man embodies her past, the other could be her future, but which one holds her heart? Isadora must choose between her family and two very different men.

In a game of kings, bishops, rooks, and knights there are no guarantees. But if Isadora wants to be a Queen, someone will have to lose.

The Queen ~ Skye Warren

SBPRBanner-The QueeN-BT.jpgThe Queen, the stunning conclusion of the Masterpiece Duet from Skye Warren is available NOW!

TheQueen-1600x2400

The Queen by Skye Warren

Publishing Date: September 19th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

THE FINAL BOOK IN THE MASTERPIECE DUET

I have one chance at a new life. A college education. A future outside of Tanglewood’s dark walls. For a breathless moment it seems like I might actually escape.

Then I get a phone call from home.

Damon Scott is my own personal dragon, the fight I’ve always lost, the secret hope of my heart. And he needs my help right now. Only my mind can solve the puzzle of his long-lost sister. Only my presence can keep him sane as the city fights against him.

Only my heart can unlock a man with such a tragic past.

This is my final gamble, with everything at stake. One last game to win a future for both of us.

And a love strong enough to break the city apart.

THE QUEEN is the final novel in the bestselling Masterpiece duet, about a game of lies and loyalty, of betrayal and power, and ascension to the city’s throne.

Excerpt:

“I’m looking for my dad. He works for you.”

That earns me a small smile, his lids low. “He does more than work for me. Does he tell you about his day when he calls me? About threatening people for money? About following through?”

Acid burns my throat, because Daddy never mentions that. And I’m not naïve enough to think it hasn’t happened. When I’m in at one of the best colleges in the country, while I live in that dreamworld of numbers and Greek symbols, he’s doing dirty work for a dangerous criminal king.

“So where is he now?”

An indolent shrug of one shoulder. “I haven’t seen him. Though I did hear through the grapevine that he started gambling again.” He makes a tsk sound. “That’s never a good thing. Once debts start to pile up, how can I trust him to be loyal? I can’t.”

My blood runs cold. “Did you do something to him?”

“Let’s be clear, sweetheart. Whatever happened to him, he did it to himself.” The cold silver of his eyes tells me Damon’s conscious would not ache for even one second over my father’s death.

“You asshole,” I hiss, unable to hide my anger any longer.

A man steps forward, someone I’ve never seen before. He’s wearing a suit that’s been undone in most of the ways it can be, rumpled and pushed aside. I barely have time to register his aggression, his instinctive response to my insult. How does a man obtain that kind of blind loyalty?

The man reaches for me, his fingers brushing my wrist.

That’s how close he gets before everything shatters. Damon moves so fast he’s a blur. When he stills, he has the man pressed against the wall, arm twisted at a strange angle.

“No one touches her.” Damon’s voice is quiet but it carries through the crowded hall.

A rustle moves through the crowd, half awareness, half movement. The way they look at me has changes, the hostility faded away, replaced by something else. Maybe deference. Or fear.

I’m under Damon Scott’s protection now.

You’ve seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!
We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother’s best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I’d opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I’d go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn’t be falling for him.
Just sex because I’d leave in three months, and I’d like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn’t the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.

Joshua Dawson is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. That alone should be reason enough for me to keep my distance. Add in that he’s a well mannered, loyal and hardworking artist and I should be running in the other direction.

He’s damn near perfect, and I prefer my men hard to love and easy to leave. Josh’s only flaw is he wants forever, and for the first time I might want the same. But loving someone doesn’t mean you deserve them.

He’s all I want and everything I can’t have.

From Me to You

I’m heading into West Bend WI for the second to last signing of the season! If you don’t know, and I suppose I don’t really mention it, in my day job I’m a Postmaster. Once November hits the madness descends! A whirlwind of packages and cards and Holiday stamps. My life stops and picks up again in January, lol. For those two months nothing but the career I have spent 29 years doing happens.

I’ve tried NaNoWriMo in November a few times. BUT MY LIFE IS MADNESS by then. I’ll probably try again this year, knowing it is probably futile. I don’t have the time to go to meetings and share the spirit of camaraderie while I type my fingers to the bone. I hide in corners of my house typing away while getting up early to put in a word count. Shoveling food in during lunch hoping I don’t spill on my computer. Getting home means putting dinner on the table, corralling the granddaughter (who, praise the lord! is taking to potty training like a duck to water) and hopefully putting in a bit of a word count.

I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

Come on out and meet me while I’m happy, lol. I’ll smile again in January! (Just joking! I’m so upbeat I drive people crazy, lol.)

So I’m trying to get one of my books out before then. I just don’t know which one! It all depends on who talks louder in my head.

In the mean time, enjoy my books that are available!  https://www.amazon.com/Beverly-Ovalle/e/B00BOGT8MU/

 

Character Interview – Daniel Blackhawk of She’s Everything by Sable Hunter

  1. Good afternoon, we’re here for a character interview. Introduce yourself to our audience, please.

 

Hello, Beverly, my name is Daniel Blackhawk and I’ve been called a character in my time, but I must tell you, I have no idea why you’d want to talk to me.

 

  1. Well, Daniel, you’re a character in a romance novel. Sable Hunter tells me the title of the book you’re featured in is called She’s Everything, does that sound familiar? And if so, are you the hero or the villain of the book?

 

A book? Are you kidding me? Sable put me in a book? Man, I knew she was trouble.

Hold on…let me check this out. (He gets on his phone and does a quick search.)

Well, I’ll be. (He chuckles.) Now, I know why she’s been asking all those questions. I thought she was visiting just to eat Sara’s pies.

Well, in anybody’s book, I’d be the hard-headed alpha hero. The title of this book is the title of my favorite country-western song and one that describes the feelings I have for my special girl to a T – She’s Everything. From what I can see here, my book will be the first in her Cowboy Craze Series. Knowing Sable, she spun this series off her popular Hell Yeah! world and some of those favorite characters will appear with us. I’m sure my brothers Ezekiel (Easy), Samuel, and Benjen will each have their own books. Our stories will be set in the Hill Country of Texas on our ranch, which is located at the base of Packsaddle Mountain on the banks of the Llano River. Beautiful country, you ought to come out and visit us sometimes.

 

  1. Well, thank you, Daniel, I’d love to. So, tell me, how did you and your story come to Sable’s attention?

 

Don’t tell anybody, but I’ve read some of Sable’s books and I know she’s always on the look-out for worthy heroes. There was a newspaper article about my Sara not too long ago, how she saved the life of a little boy who’d wandered out into the highway. I think that article probably got her attention and then she started nosing around. As far as worthy heroes, I hope to hell I fall into that category. I know I’ve had some things happen to me that could be described by the words – ‘what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger’, and I’d like to think I’ve learned from those things. Maybe, they made me a better man.

My brothers and I are of Native American descent, which I think appeals to Sable, she sure did ask a lot of questions. She loves to add a little bit of local color and lore to her stories and the tales told of the area around our ranch are a good mix of historical and spooky.

I know Sable loves to write about flawed heroes and characters that have a mountain to climb. I know I certainly fit that description.

 

  1. Did you give Sable a hard time when she was writing your story?

 

Well, I didn’t know she was writing the story…but I do have a tendency to be stubborn. I always try to put my loved ones first and I’ve been told I sometimes go overboard trying to protect them. I almost lost Sara forever because I tried to protect her from my problems.

 

  1. Very interesting. What do you do for a living, Daniel?

 

When I was a kid, my friends and I would play Cowboys and Indians and hint-hint, I didn’t play the cowboy role often. Now, I do. I’m a cowboy and a rancher. I share ownership of Blackhawk Ranch with my three brothers, where we raise cattle and horses. Some of the property is used to raise hay, which we bale and sell. We’ve recently bought more land to increase our holdings and we’re in the process of setting up an exotic game area of our ranch for hunting.

 

  1. Who is the love of your life?

 

That’s an easy question, the love of my life is Sara Riley. I fell in love with her from the moment I first saw her. Bam! Lovestruck. Lightning bolt. I wanted to propose before I introduced myself.

 

  1. What was the first thing you noticed about her?

 

My first glimpse of Sara occurred when she ran out into a busy highway to pluck a little child out of the path of an eighteen-wheeler. She was an angel of mercy and she certainly looked the part. I thought she was the most beautiful sight I’d ever laid eyes on and I decided at that moment that she’d be mine.

 

  1. What’s your greatest fear?

 

Before I met Sara, my greatest fear was the judgment of others. I hated to be weighed in the balance and found wanting just because of the color of my skin or my last name. Loving Sara changed that, she allowed me look at myself through her eyes.

Another issue I had to work through was my fear of failing the ones I love. Again, Sara helped me understand that true love can conquer all fears.

Now, the only thing I truly am afraid of is something happening to Sara. She’s my life.

 

  1. What’s your motto in life?

 

Hmmm, I haven’t thought much about mottos. But if I had to come up with one, I’d say its…Lightning doesn’t always strike twice, so grab onto what you want in life with both hands.

When you read the book, you’ll see what that means.

 

  1. How do the other characters in your book view you?

 

My brothers view me as their protector, their big brother, the one who helps and guides them. (He smiles and winks.) Sara views me as sexy, I hope. She also knows that I would die for her in a heartbeat, I hope I’m her hero.

And there are a couple of folks in the book who love to put me down, to remind me that there are people in the world who will always find me lacking for no reason other than I’m not like them.

 

  1. What do you think readers will find interesting about you?

 

I think the female readers will enjoying seeing how much I love Sara and what I’m willing to do to prove that love to her. They’ll also, hopefully, like my cowboy lifestyle. Living and working a ranch in Texas is an experience I wouldn’t trade for any other job in the world.

 

  1. What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?

 

Oh, ha! Wow, that’s personal. Well, let me see, I’m a pretty typical American guy. I can’t say that I’m into BDSM, but I do like sex to be adventurous. I’ve been known to have sex in places like the beautiful waters at the Slab, a swimming hole on our ranch and we’ve also made love in the hay loft. And…I didn’t tell Sable this, or it would’ve ended up in the book, but I do love pie and I’ve eaten it off some pretty plates in my time, but the prettiest dish was Sara herself.

 

  1. Will we be seeing you in future books?

 

Oh, yes. Knowing Sable, she already has Benjen’s and Easy’s books in the planning stage and Sara and I will be right there, along with some McCoy friends and family.

 

  1. What makes you happy?

 

My Sara makes me happy. Just looking at her makes me smile. Like the title says, she’s my everything. My brothers also make me happy, I never want to live too far from them. I can’t wait until their all settled down and happy as we are. Sara is already pregnant and I look forward to big family celebrations. I have a sweet tooth too, so when Sara makes my favorite Almond Joy pie, she knows I’m a contented guy.

 

  1. What makes you mad?

 

Having someone threaten my family makes me furious, as Sara’s abusive ex found out in no uncertain terms. Injustice and racism angers me also, since I’ve walked in those moccasins and know how hurtful and damaging they can be.

She’s been hurt, tricked, and abandoned by someone she trusted, so making herself vulnerable again is a difficult choice.
Laying his heart on the line, Daniel sets out to show Sara he is exactly who she’s been waiting for all her life. He wants to be her champion, her dragon-slayer, and her knight in shining armor – all rolled into one.
With exquisite attention to her every need, Daniel begins to woo her – making her happy, keeping her safe, proving that there is nothing he won’t do for her. Their chemistry is off the charts, the heat between them is irresistible.
Sara is Daniel’s everything.
Their happy-ever-after seems assured…until the unthinkable happens.
When their world falls apart, only the power of love can save them.
Excerpt:

 

“See anything you like?”

Daniel chuckled. “Now, that’s a leading question if I’ve ever heard one.”

Sara flushed. “I meant pie.”

“You’ve got some great looking pies here.” He took a whiff. She smelled good too, fresh and sweet, like a summer rain. “What do you recommend?”

“What’s your favorite flavor?”

“Anything I could taste on your lips.” Daniel knew he was being forward, but once you find what you’ve been looking for, waiting seemed foolhardy.

“You’re a tease.”

When she looked up at him and smiled, her face went from pretty to heart-stopping and Daniel almost went to his knees. “Tell me your name, beautiful.”

“Sara.”

“Sara. I love it, it feels good on my lips.” She was even more beautiful up close, where he could see the emotions flit across her face and appreciate the twinkle in her sapphire blue eyes. When she offered her hand and his fingers closed over hers, a rush of energy flowed between them – electric, heated, sensual. “I’m Daniel Blackhawk and I love…” He gave her a dazzling smile. “Coconut.”

“Coconut.” She repeated inanely, hesitant to reclaim her hand. “I have an Almond Joy pie I bet you’d enjoy.” With his lips curled into a smile, he transformed from a knight in cowboy boots to an angel, one of the fallen variety who spent their time being naughty because they’d turned their back on Heaven for the privilege. She blushed at her own thoughts, knowing she was staring, hypnotized by his presence. Tingles of guilt made their way up her spine. If he knew her better, he wouldn’t want her. “Would you like to try it?”

“Yes, I would. In fact, give me the whole pie.”  When he saw another customer approaching, he knew he couldn’t wait any longer. “About the date, I was serious. I really want to spend some time with you.”

“Thank you. I’m flattered.” She wanted to accept – but she couldn’t, not until she figured out how to solve the mess she’d made of her life. “I’m afraid I can’t, I already have plans.”

“Another date? Break it.”

“No, not a date. I have to bake, this is the way I make my living.”

“I bet I’d make a good assistant, if you’d give me a chance.”

Sara chewed on her lower lip, presenting him with the pie. “Take this, on the house.” She wanted to give him something and this was all she was free to give. Hiding her scars was all she knew how to do.

Daniel accepted them, but he put money in the tip jar labeled Children’s Miracle Network. “In your honor.” He held up the to-go box. “I’ll relish every bite and I’ll see you tomorrow. I’m almost certain my…hankering for pie is not going to be satisfied anytime soon.”

Daniel moved to his truck. Yea, he was smitten. One little rejection wasn’t about to dissuade him – hell no.

His heart was set on getting to know Sara Riley a whole lot better.
